Family Photography

Being a parent is amazing....and challenging and overwhelming....but so joyful and fun too. You get to be a kid again, making boats out of cardboard boxes, playing princesses and burying each other in the sand on holiday. I mean that's pretty ace, right? But these are on the days that you have time to play. You don't always. Life gets pretty busy. 

You try to capture these valuable family times on your phone cam, snapping quickly before you rejoin the fun. But then you're not in the photos. Rubbish. 

Every now and again you think about booking a photo shoot so you can get some beautiful photos of the whole family, but then think about what an almighty faff that sounds. Worse, what if you don't get along with the photographer? What if he or she makes you pose in a forced and super awkward way? You dismiss the idea and it stays on your 'to do' list. 

I don't like using the words 'photo shoot' to describe what I provide for families. A 'shoot' feels formal and staged, something separate to normal life. My photo sessions are designed to fit in with you. When you book a session, you invite me to be a part of your normal family life, just for a short while. I aim to capture you, as a family, just as you are. It's so special to have a document of life as it is right now. 

I join you at a place you love and be there whilst you do the activities you enjoy. I take lots of photos but you quickly forget that's why I am there. My families always comment how quickly they feel relaxed. 

After our time together, you receive a variety of colourful, characterful and fun images to choose from. You receive edited digital versions of your chosen photos. Put them on the wall, add them to a photo book, but just promise me that you will look at them regularly and chat about them. Looking at photos is such an amazing way to connect (and re-connect) with each other.  

See some family photo examples.

What happens after the family or newborn photo session? ​

  • I send you a secure online proofs gallery of the best images (these will have had a basic edit and are watermarked). Families usually receive around 80 images to choose from. 

  • Images that you choose to purchase are £10 each. You receive edited high and low resolution digital files.

  • You also receive one of your chosen images as an A4 mounted print.

  • If you purchase 25 digital edited images (or more) you will also receive a free photo book featuring a selection of your photographs
  • Extra prints may also be purchased if required.

I provide extended family shoots in a slightly different way; 


Extended Family Photo Session (two family groups or more eg. including grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins)

Fee - payable on booking

£175 per hour (images included - see below)

  • Prior to the session, we can discuss how many hours you think you may require, although can usually be adaptable on the day.

  • I choose and provide all the best images from the shoot as a digital downloadable collection (at least 20 per shooting hour).

  • Prints may be purchased if required
